Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J. Headshot 2014


Due to the expected traffic snarls and the possibility of worse in Clayton, we have decided to POSTPONE the Christ the King Form with Fr. Meconi until Sunday, 7-December-2014.

Tonight’s talk examines the meaning of “Kingdom” as evidenced throughout the Magisterium’s Compendium of The Social Doctrine of the Church and how Christ the King is the ultimate goal of what St. John Paul II meant by the term “New Evangelization.”  Here the Kingdom is presented not as a place but as a living task entrusted to those in union with Christ.  As such, the “Kingdom of God” must be fostered in terms of relationship, as Christians seek a three-fold peace: with the divine Trinity, with their own brothers and sisters, and with the creation entrusted to their care.
